Malware Posing As Youtube Codec

Recommended Posts

Several websites offer a YouTube-look-alike streaming video that is actually a link to Storm trojan. The infection vector is specially crafted and spread via love related blogs. This time, users are required to download the so-called Storm Codec in order to view the said video.

 

The said ?codec? is actually a NUWAR/Storm variant, which Trend Micro already detects as WORM_NUWAR.JQ since April 2.

I heard of this before. The fake codec's. One of these days, if they find a way, they will insert the malware with the video and as it streams to infect you. When you read things like this, you thank God for the Malware Experts!
